Barbados Hotels on a Map
If you want to get around the island for the best Barbados holiday experience, then you have two main choices. The first is to rent a car or a motorcycle and venture out under your own steam to see the many attractions on offer. Many car hire operators will deliver your vehicle to the airport or your hotel for ease of collection, and they will also ensure you obtain the required local driving permit, allowing you to drive on the roads legally when you make your booking.
In addition, your rental car company can also sort out any additional insurances, such as CDW insurance or motorcycle insurance, if required.
The second option is to use public transport. Buses and taxis are available to tourists for this purpose. Buses run from 06:00 until midnight and the good news is that the government-owned bus companies charge a flat rate fee for all journeys to any part of the island of BDS$1.50.
Taxis are widely available across the island and offer a little more privacy and convenience for a little extra expense. Taxis available to rent include the usual types of car and small vans up to and including coach size vehicles depending on the needs and size of your party.
